Moonchip Fake Who's Online Pro For Wordpress (widget)
Fake whos online for Wordpress is a plugin/widget that allows you to display a fake amount of users online on your Wordpress site.
It allows you control the amount of fake users online and how long they stay online for.
In the back-end there are numerous option's available to give you control over your fake members and guests.
Setting Up Members
This option allows you to choose the minimum and maximum amount of members you want online, the widget will choose a random number between these values for you.
You don't want a fixed static amount of members online, you want this number to fluctuate giving the illusion of members logging on and off, the amount of members online will never go above or below the values you set here.
How long do they stay online?
This option is how long the current random total of members should be displayed for (in seconds).
If you set this to 30 seconds that means the front end widget will display the current random total of members for 30 seconds no matter how many times you refresh the page, after this time expires a new total of members will be displayed (randomly chosen again) for another 30 seconds and so on... The number of members that are ever chosen will never go above or below the values you have previously set in the min/max options. This is the key to creating realistic traffic fluctuation on your site.
If you look at the fake whos online widget on the left of this page I have set it up with the settings you see in the image at the top of this page, you should be able to refresh this page and the values for both members and guests should stay the same for 30 seconds at a time.
Changing the text
If you want to change the text you can do that here, you may want the guest text to display 'visitors' instead, simply type in how you want the members/guests text to appear in the front-end widget here.
Turn of member display
If your wordpress site doesnt have registered members ie. you may be running a blog, you can turn off the members display completely so that only the guests display shows in the front end widget, simply tick the box next to 'hide member display' to turn it off.
